systems change with an equity lens Webinar 

Recently, we partnered with Building Movement Project to better understand what systems change with an equity lens might look like. The main questions we have explored are:

  • What does transformative systems change look like?
  • Where are we seeing real shifts in power and lasting transformation?
  • What is different about the approaches led by people of color, women, immigrants and others groups who are leading this work and often on the periphery of dominant narratives about systems change?

These initial conversations brought into focus how systems change with an equity lens differs from a conventional approach by explicitly addressing how white supremacy and patriarchy sustain unhealthy systems. 

With partners in the field and other systems change practitioners, we developed a framework that distills four key components that distinguish systems change with an equity lens from other systems change efforts.

We shared this framework in the format of a webinar which we cohosted in June 2018. The webinar also featured guest speakers Reverend Joan C. Ross of the North End Woodward Community Coalition and Lauren Padilla-Valverde, Senior Program Manager at the California Endowment, who shared their experiences advancing complex systems change that centers racial equity. 

A re-cap of the webinar and a link to the recording can be found over on our blog
